    Sinus infection with no drainage??

    Hello! Has anyone had a sinus infection when all the mucus was locked up in the sinus's and not coming out. I had a sinus headache going on for a week. Then that went away and now I have pressure just on the left side of my face. I feel the pressure in my sinus's and it goes out to my ear and even up to my temple on the side of my face. I am going to see the doc tomorrow to see if I need and antibiotic. But this is weird. It doesn't hurt. Nothing is coming out at this point, maybe just a little when I blow my nose. But it just feels weird that there is pressure on one side of my face over to the temple. I hope it's nothing else other than a sinus issue. Any thoughts? ?? Thanks for any replies.

    yes! Those headaches are the worst since it's a constant pressure and you just want it to "pop". Hard to say if it's still "infected" or your sinuses are just too swollen to release the mucus. Try taking some anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen for a day or two and see if that helps.

    Thanks! I went to the doctor yesterday and yes, I do have a bad sinus infection. I am now on antibiotics and Sudefed to open me up. So it is good to know how important it is to keep the sinus's open so they can drain. Otherwise and infection can start up.
